In the Days of the Comet Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

IN THE DAYS OF THE COMET is a provocative, insightful, often humorous and finally scandalous look at the transformation of the world into something like a wonderland — a comet dusts the earth in a near-miss, and its substance people everywhere: jealousy and possessive behaviors of men and women become passions for cooperation and peace. Sounds idyllic enough — but contemporary readers were aghast at the suggestion that religion, marriage, and capitalism, could be replaced by a primitivistic urge to help, share, and love. IN THE DAYS OF THE COMET is a book that's been unkindly overlooked, lost in the dusty classics section of our libraries. THE TIME MACHINE has frequently been described as the best novella ever written for its blend of humanist philosophy and visionary science. IN THE DAYS OF THE COMET might be described as a fuller working of the same themes, expanded in a memorably liberal love story.
